Subject: I want split pea soup now!
Just ok home movie, with a lot of exteriors, nothing really memorable. A few people scenes, but not much else :/

Subject: A few more details.
The "old fort" is Fort Nisqually (in Point Defiance Park, Tacoma WA) and the "bridge over a bay" is the Narrows Bridge nearby.
